History

The history of the Ipswich area since European settlement in 1827 is quite complex and varied. Situated strategically between urban Brisbane and a rural hinterland, Ipswich rapidly established its hegemony on the basis of wool, coal, transport and industry. The speed with which the town developed and diversified, compared with its string of nearby hamlets, was very rapid. Nevertheless some years such as the 1880s and early 1900s were prosperous and expansive, while others, particularly the 1890s and 1930s, were characterized by stagnation and depression.

Greater Springfield located right on Brisbane’s doorstep is Australia’s fastest emerging new city. It drives one of the nation’s fastest urban growth corridors and is the only fully master planned city to be built in Australia other than Canberra.
